The Global CALM Program is an international initiative to train clinicians in CALM therapy, gather evidence about the implementation of CALM in diverse settings, and to make CALM a standard of care for people facing metastatic and advanced cancer throughout the world.

Global CALM Network

GIPPEC has formed a network of international sites in Europe, Austral-Asia, North and South America. Each site has a CALM lead who is responsible for the implementation of CALM in their centre with the aim of becoming a hub to support training, data collection and the implementation of CALM in multiple sites within their region.
